EnduringUnderstandings
Geometry is a mathematical system built on accepted facts, basic terms and definitions. A postulate or axiom is an accepted statement of fact. You can use special geometric tools to make a figure that is congruent to an original figure without measuring. Construction is more accurate than sketching and drawing. Analyzing geometric relationships develops reasoning and justification skills. Unique relationships exist between lines and angles

EssentialQuestions
What are the building blocks of geometry? How can you describe the attributes of geometric elements and figures? How do you describe relationships among geometric elements figures? What is the relationship between construction and congruency? How do the properties of lines and angles contribute to geometric understanding? What role do lines and angles play in interpreting the world around us?
